Modern Art in Iraq: From the pioneers of the 1930s to the looting of 2003

Modern Art in Iraq: From the pioneers of the 1930s to the looting of 2003

Salam Atta Sabri is an Iraqi artist and the founder and Director of the Iraqi Pioneers Committee in Baghdad. Following the looting of 2003, he published a partial list of the artwork missing from the Museum. In addition, he founded a non-governmental organization that works to preserve the history and artworks of the pioneers of modern Iraqi fine arts (one of whom was his father). This lecture was presented with co-sponsorship from The American Academic Research Institute in Iraq and the Council of American Overseas Research Centers, with funding from Carnegie Corporation of New York; Portland Community College's Internationalization Initiative; the MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research at the Pacific Northwest College of Art; and the Portland State University Department of Art
